Lacn a funkcny regultor do lod. Skrtka ak nevyaduje extra funkcie a len pripoji a funguje.???? ?? ?? ??? ???. ???? ???? ?? ?? ????Quality not so good... despite it was watercooled (and water was in the whole cooler when I grabbed the "burnung" ESC throwing it out of the boat, it got so hot, the battery input soldered itself out...
Despite that, after autopsy I saw that the cooler itself didn't set properly. Six MosFets weren't properly soldered and did not have any proper contact to the heat dispensing silicon mat, so they seem to get too hot....
Cheep Cheep... I say... :-( What a bummer...
I dont recomend this ESC for these reasons :
A. Throtle curve is not linear...
B. Always need off, before push the throtle again.
C. Very ugly ESC board ((compared to Turnigy Boat ESC)
D. Very very low quality Heat Transfer Tape
E. Burned after 3 runs...
F. No Reverse...
I recomend you get HobbyKing Boat ESC. They're much better quality for the buck...Read what ket2175 wrote, i got the same experience with this ESC. My ESC burned (destroyed) and almost get my boat in fired. My Fibreglass hull is heavily spoiled because of this ESC.
The throtle response is not linear with this ESC, sometimes the ESC is not responsed to my Transmiter (i have to zeroed the throtle before it begins to response again).
Use it for Racing Only, definetly not suitable if you half throtle all the time. Not recommended for slow use setups...
So many glitch with this ESC... The heat transfer tape is very low quality too... The BEC seems rated right 5A. The ESC isnot waterproof either, make sure you seal it with silicone.
So, mine was killed on first run. i thought the kind of epoxy which you find on the PCB and on the cables would work as water protection. IT DOES NOT. WATER PROTECT THIS ESC! put it in epoxy or anything else. It can be better seen as an ESC-kit than an ESC ready-to-use. the issue with the missing heat transfer between FET and cooling plate is already known. I will use the cooling plate and the BEC circuit to build a 200A watercooled ESC with the ss series...Mr vetem egy prat ebl a mrkbl s tkletesen megvagyok vele elgedve.
This esc suck , fried on the very 3rd run only. And the cooling is far too lousy. Not worth the money at all very unhappy I over sized to keep this from happening 3rd or 4th pass and it fried out. After waiting three weeks to get it and frie it in the same day very upset.
I mounted the ESC on a bait boat of about 8kg twin engine, an engine S2858-2630 cooled by water and today I have been burned one of the ESC, and serpentir motors are perfect. consumption of motors is unladen 10A at full capacity, submerged in water I could not try. Propellers 45mm and 260mm shaft
He montado este ESC en un barco cebador de aproximadamente 8Kg bimotor, un motor S2858-2630 refigerado por agua y hoy se me ha quemado uno de los ESC, los motores llevan serpentir y perfecto. el consumo de los motores en vacio es de 10A, a pleno rendimiento, sumergido en agua no he podido probar. Las helices de 45mm y 260mm de ejeI programmed as instructed. Pluged in the Lipo Battery and the ESC started smoking!! ...End of ESC. Waiting to see what HobbyKing will do the remedy.
